As my build moves forward, I thought to myself, holly crap I need a burner, then I got looking looking, once again holly crap theres an army of them to choose from and I have NO idea whats important and whats not.
This burner will gets TONS of use for burning dvds, NO NEED FOR BLUERAY at this time. Please make my life a little easier, What good quality cd/dvd burner do I need. They all seem rather cheap, I just want the best one,
I see they are sata now, I didnt know that, I would assume they are much better then the old ata that Im using now?
This is new eggs highest rated, but that dont mean much
SATA does not give any speed advantage to the drives. However, it is really nice for cables - the SATA cables are much less of a pain than the old ribbon cables. As for which one? Really, it's hard to go wrong right now, but I've always had good luck with Pioneer, Lite-on and LG. That Samsung looks fine too.
